In response to a confession. My dh is like this too.. I will tell him things repeatedly, even just basic day to day stuff, and he will either say he forgot, or that I never told him. Even to things I said multiple times. He doesn't have any mental issues, just an ass that never really listens to me. And sometimes after the 2nd or 3rd time of telling him, he will say "I know, I heard you the first time". Well, how about a reply or acknowledgment that you heard me then, so I don't have to keep repeating myself? Ugh, it's just one of the many reasons I'm considering divorce.

Came home from the radio interview and asked my husband how his day was going. He said fine, how's yours. I told him the radio interview had been okay, but that it would have been nice if he had wished me luck or asked me how it had gone. He said I hadn't told him about it. Really?!? I told him about it when I was invited to participate. I told him last night that I was setting my alarm early so I would be on time for it. I told him when I got up that I was nervous. What did he think I was talking about? When I left the house he just said, "bye," but I thought at some point he might remember where I was going. I don't have work today and didn't mention a trip to the store or anything. Where did he think I was going?

I worked at a place that had a 'health challenge' one year. It didn't have to do with weight per se, but it was more like you have to meet goals like X grams of fiber, X ounces of water.... I don't remember what else there was. Physical activity was in there though, and the ladies had a little jazzercise thing in the conference room at night sometimes. It was kind of funny and cute. They had fun. I thought that was better than a 'lose weight' challenge because everybody could participate. I was already too thin so I couldn't have really participated in a weight loss challenge, but I did participate in the health challenge. God, the bathrooms there at the office when EVERYBODY started eating a ton of fiber..... lol. It was something.

I hate this time of year because of the stupid weight loss challenge at work. It puts a giant bullseye on me because I'm *gasp* thin enough that I don't participate. I can't even eat my lunch in the break room without the damn billing department scrutinizing my food. Like, yeah. I eat salad and lean protein. Leave me alone.

I don't want to talk about it on FB, so I am confessing it here- I am representing my colleagues as part of a panel of people across California who are being interviewed on public radio tomorrow, because our issues have been in the news. I'm not nervous, but I'd appreciate any positive vibes you can send my way! I'm excited and hope to do a good job.

In response to a confession. How about an attendance challenge? Absenteeism and tardiness are huge issues at my job.

In response to a confession. I think employers need to stay OUT of employees' private business. That includes no employee physicals for most jobs, and if a physical is done, it should be job related. In other words, someone applying to answer phones for a utility company does not need a physical, especially if she is to be weighed and asked when her last period was.

In response to a confession. I don't think an employee weight loss challenge is necessarily discriminatory to employees who are at their "ideal" weight. I think it's actually insulting to all of their employees. "Hey! So, hey...you guys are pretty fat! Actually, we don't care about you either way, but we might save some money on health insurance costs if you guys lose weight, or get to claim that we are into "promoting wellness," so if you could just lose 10-20 lbs for us, and that will be great. We'll even throw in ONE PAID DAY OFF! It will be great competing with your friends for that. Not exactly an even trade, but you guys won't know the difference, and you get so few perks you'll be willing to participate in this degrading nonsense, and actually thank us for it. So, have fun!" Capitalism is great, ha!

Woohoo, got a holiday bonus 3x more than last year. Things are tight with the move, so I'm very grateful.

Our company is having a weight loss challenge. The winning team gets an extra 8 hours of PTO. There are a couple of us (myself included) who can't medically lose any more weight or are trying to actively gain weight to get healthier. So we can't participate and are by default not eligible to win the prize. Part of me wants to tell HR that it's discriminatory and part of me wants to let my anorexia come back in full force and lose 10 lbs to win the damn prize.
